“Obviously, the goal was to,” said Novak Djokovic.

Following a lengthy layoff, Novak Djokovic rejoined the ATP Tour two weeks ago. The Serbian tennis star won this year’s Wimbledon competition before being forced to withdraw from a number of tournaments in the United States because of rules that forbid admitting anyone who have not received the coronavirus vaccine.

Even Nevertheless, Nole won both the ATP tournament in Tel Aviv and the Kazakh tournament in Nur Sultan within a few days of Novak Djokovic‘s circuit return. The 21-time Grand Slam champion will be able to compete in the year’s final major event thanks to the Astana 500, which gave him admission to the Turin Finals.

The only significant challenges Djokovic faced were in the semi-finals, where the Serbian fought valiantly against Daniil Medvedev. Djokovic won nearly all of the sets without any specific concerns. The Russian came near to winning the first set, which he won 6-4. After Djokovic won the second set, Daniil was forced to withdraw because of a physical issue.

The winner of the Balkan region defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in the championship match without much difficulty. Due to vaccine regulations, Novak Djokovic was unable to compete in the Australian Open and the US Open in 2022, where he was considered the overwhelming favorite.

This year, Djokovic also won Wimbledon, but the ATP’s choices prevented him from receiving the 2000 points that would have been more appropriate for him. Djokovic, who is currently at number 7 in the ATP rankings despite him, completely distorts the standings.

The ATP Finals will include Nole.

Given that he already has a Grand Slam victory this year (at Wimbledon in July), Novak Djokovic simply needed to place in the top 20 to qualify for the ATP Finals in Turin. The Serb is assured of remaining in the top 20 positions in the world before the Masters after to his two victories over Stefanos Tsitsipas on Sunday. He won consecutive titles in Tel Aviv and Nur-Sultan.

He expressed his joy after getting his ticket during a news conference. “Clearly, getting into the Masters was the main objective. Now that it’s finished, I can relax more before my upcoming events. The season will come to a close with events in Turin (November 13–20, editor’s note) and Paris (October 29–November 6, editor’s note). After that, we’ll get ready for the next.
